Music Review – Wooden Wing – Permanent Daydream

Leah Brzezinski, contributor As S.H.I.T.’s unofficial “Midwestern music correspondent,” it’s high time I covered some of Chicago’s vast local music scene. Wooden Wing’s latest LP is equal parts rustic, groovy, and futuristic. It’s reminiscent of The Postal Service, with indie-pop male/female vocals, but set amidst ambient electric rock, field recordings, and lots of freaky instrumentation. Permanent Daydream is apt—it’s like …

Music Review – QuadkilleR – Untitled

Rosa Green, contributor  So, apparently in Arkansas they know of us here at Savage Henry as bitches who’ll review any damn thing that shows up on our desks! Yeah right! Like we would review some small time local political electro group from who knows where named QuadkilleR. It turns out they’re not that bad and I enjoy listening to them. …

Music Review – Autumn Electric – Flowers for Ambrosia

Adrienne Marie, contributor  The term “progressive” can be just as confusing as “alternative” (what the hell does that mean these days, anyway?). Sometimes music moves forward, using modern ideas, breaks that tired, old pop format, and can only be tagged with the label of “progressive.” I’d say that the newly-released fourth full-length album from Autumn Electric, Flowers for Ambrosia, is …

Great Movies Turned Into Shitty Video Games

Zeke Herrera, contributor Aside from clothes, books, toys, spin-off TV shows, phone cases, playing cards, school supplies, film cells, marital aids, jewelry, Halloween costumes, cooking supplies, stickers, and posters, there aren’t very many ways for people to make extra money off movies, and that’s where video games come in. Now, everybody knows movies that aren’t sequels, remakes, or spin-offs are …

Here’s What I Did When You Were Super Boring, Playing Video Games

Lucy Castle, contributor 1) I brought your lunch home that you ordered, and I ate half of your Philly cheesesteak and just added lots of lettuce so you didn’t notice. You didn’t. 2) I crawled around on all fours like a panther, wearing only a demi-bra and a dog collar in front of you. You scratched your chubby and got …

Catching Up With the Stars of Street Fighter: The Movie

Ryan Dunn, contributor Guile: Street Fighter’s universal soldier should have followed his own advice when he told his bloodied opponents to go home and be family men. Instead, the all-american hero with a thick French accent let 90’s action hero fame go to his head. Between his troublesome affair with co-star and fellow world warrior Cammy and blowing thousands of …

#46 Letter #1

Savage Henry, you are a one eyed lizard in a world of blind toads. Why do you feel the need to go out on paper? I know that the more paper used makes a need for more trees to planted but I never pegged your gang as environmentalists but what do I know (rhetorical, in case you missed it)? Can …

How to Draw a Snowman

William Toblerone , contributor Photos by Sweet T Wintertime is here, and it’s the perfect time to celebrate the season by drawing a happy snowman. The only problem is that everyone knows that sketching a snowman without guidance is damn near impossible. You end up with a random collection of meaningless shapes and squiggles, and you are lucky if you …

Gallery Man

Mischa Trubs, contributor A few years ago I was fortunate enough to work at one of the most prestigious art galleries in San Francisco, the John Berggruen Gallery. I was fired three months later for overheating my boss’ Hot Pocket in the microwave. In his defense, it was a deluxe Hot Pocket. During my time at the gallery I learned …

Things You Didn’t Know Were Made By Famous Artists

Zeke Herrera, contributor There have been literally millions of phenomenal artists since the beginning of Etsy, but did you know that art existed before the Internet? This is about the artists that didn’t have that crutch of erotic fan fiction and Elmer’s glue. Some of those artists have really famous pieces of work that are complete dog shit compared to …
